Let's talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ - Good Mythical Morning!. - As you might know, we recently released a video on the rhettandlink channel, a music video called (both) "Are You Gonna Eat That?" - ♪ (heavy electronic music) ♪ - (Rhett singing) Are you gonna at that? It was basically us eating a bunch of stuff, which is kinda the music-video - version of… this show, at this point. - Our lives. Out lives. Be honest. - But you have seen that we are willing - We eat stuff. to eat lost of things that people might not eat be, uh... - normally in the mood to eat, - Mhm. but everything that we eat is edible, technically. We don't eat things that could kill us, but today, we're gonna play a game... - Like that live, raw chicken. - Yeah. - That we cut right before you ate. - Right, I didn't actually eat it. We eat things that won't kill us, but on today's episode, if you make the wrong choice, you might eat something that'll kill ya. - What? - Is that how it works? No, actually, no. (stammering) But we've devised a way to learn what's edible... - Yes. - …that you didn't know. It's time to play… "Is It Edible or Dead-ible?" subtitle, "Can you eat that… or can you eat that thing beside it?" We're gonna take turns, so who's going first? - Me-- I-- you-- me? - (Noah offscreen) Link is gonna go first. - Link's gonna go first. - Oh, thank you! And then Link will have two things in front of him. He has to pick - which one is actually the edible thing. - Which is edible; what's dead-ible. - If I get it right, I get a point... - Yep. and you have to eat the edible thing. If I get it wrong, you get the point, - and I have to eat the thing… - (Rhett) Right. …that's edible, but I'm told that none of the things are desirable, - even though their technically edible. - So if you're not able to eat the thing in that round that you have been specified to eat, the other guy gets another point. You'll understand. Let's go ahead and get started with... (both) Round One! - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round One! - ♪ (light jazz) ♪ - All right, waiter Chase, bring it out. If you'd bring it in to me. - Wow, look at that. It's very fancy. - I feel so… yeah, it's plastic, but it… (knocking) That's totally plastic. Oh, you shouldn't have revealed that that was plastic. - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Rhett) Could you say something nice... - …when you reveal it? - (Link) Okay. - Yeah, absolutely. Voilà! - Oh, that's-- oh, very nice, Chase. - "Voilà." - (Link) So I'm going to choose which one of these is edible? What is this? (Rhett) Well, it's gonna be the wrappers. (Noah offscreen) They are both the wrappers, so Starburst and Mexican candy. I think I know that Starburst wrappers are edible, because it's so hard to get 'em off. You just might as well just eat it. So that's what I think, but I'm not gonna put anything past Mexico. I mean, they are sly with the sugar. (rustling) This thing could be sugar... - (Rhett laughing) "This thing." - Smells like a wrapper. - What's your answer? - Uh… I'm almost positive that you can eat a Starburst wrapper, technically. So I'm saying that: - Starburst wrappers. - (Noah offscreen) You are correct. - Okay, so (correct ding), and you have to - (Rhett) Eat one. - eat all three of these. - (Rhett) I have to eat all three of these? (crunchy chewing) Did you put all three in your mouth? (laughing) (Link) Sounds like you're churning butter in your mouth. - (laughing) Round Two! - All right! - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Two! - All right, this is for Rhett. - Bring her in, Chase. - You coulda tucked your shirt in, Chase. - (laughing) When I go to fancy restaurants, the waiters have their shirts tucked in. - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - What's this? - (Link) What do you see, Rhett? Tell us. - (Rhett) I see a plum pit. Obviously a plum is edible, but they're giving me the plum as a reference. Talking 'bout the plum pit. And then there's a dandelion: flower and the seeds. Okay, now… I hope that Chase gnawed the plum off of that pit and you're gonna have - to eat the pit. - (Rhett) I know for a fact, Jack, that dandelion is edible, because you can get it in fancy restaurants. - So I'm gonna go with dandelion. - Okay. - (Noah offscreen) You are correct. - (correct ding) Oh! - (Link) So I'm supposed to eat… - (Rhett) All of it! - You made me eat both those… - Both of these are edible? They're different forms of the same thing. - (Noah offscreen) Both edible. - (Rhett) I hope… don't blow on it! - (Rhett) Oh, it's like a lollipop. - (crew offscreen laughing) Look at that. You took it in just like a lollipop. How is that? - Ooh, it's bitter! - Eat dat. - (Link, deep voice) "Eat dat! Eat dat!" - (laughing) You cannot eat a plum pit, - is the natural implication here. - (Noah offscreen) That's correct... - (loud chewing) - …may contain cyanide, which prevents... - (loud chewing) - …blood from being transported... - (loud chewing) - …transporting oxygen, and you die... - …from asphyxiation. - It's like someone ordered a bad salad, raked off the stuff they didn't want, and forced me to eat it. - But… you ate it. - But nothing. I did eat it. Yeah. - So you don't get another point. - Next round! - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Three! -All right, Chaster, bring it in, and… - Could you say "Bon appétit" when - you open it? ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Chase) "Bon appétit!" (Rhett) Whoa, that's turtle! (Link) What is this, like a… like a ear of a… like a Vulcan? That's the top of a chicken's head, dude. - (Link) Oh, no. - (Noah) You're right, that is a cockscomb. I got really scared for a second, then I realized, "You know, I'ma get this right." - (Rhett moaning) - You have to eat it! (manic laughing) You can't eat a turtle shell! How could you get this down, anyway? I think you're gonna get two points this round! - (both laughing) - You can eat this, but I'm not even gonna touch it. The comb of a chicken is edible by some people. - (Noah offscreen) That is correct. - Yes! (Noah offscreen) Many turtle shells have salmonella. - (correct ding) - Ooh, it's greasy. Look at that grease. - How was this prepared? - (Noah offscreen) That was boiled. - (sputters) - It looks like a human ear that's been... - (crew laughing offscreen) - It's just boiled? It looks like a multi-finned fish. I'm [gonna] think [about] it like that. "Oh, look at this three-finned bream… from the pond." But picture it perched on the top of the chicken. (crew offscreen laughing) - To roosters everywhere. - (Link) It's big! It's this is what's now, what's next? Gosh, you... - (Rhett laughing) Oh! - (high-pitched voice) Oh! (laughing) - Come on, do it, man. Do it. - I can't even get through it. - It's so fatty and so cartilage-y. - (Link) Ugh! - (crunchy stretching) - (Link and crew offscreen gagging) Ugh, ugh, ugh. (crunchy chewing) (crew offscreen laughing) - (crunch) - (Link) I'm sorry, dude. - You know what? Gimme the point. - (mouth full) I can't do it, man. - You don't have a trash can over there. - (gags) I got one. - (correct ding) - Here, eh... - (spitting) - Ooh, there is a trash can over there. - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Four! Okay, that was bad. I'm afraid where it's going next, but... one of the things we forgot to mention at the top was the grand prize is really good. The person who wins gets to eat this amazing pastrami cheeseburger. Something that you would want to eat, unlike... - Oh… - chicken head that I just ate. And it's-- oh, man, that smells good. So I'm just gonna... - That's what's up for grabs. - Keep my eye on the prize. - Next one, Chase. Bring it on out. - ♪ (light jazz) ♪ - This is for me, right? Okay… - Uh, no. This is for me. Oh. Yeah, that's right. - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - (Chase) "Bon appétit." - (Rhett) Oh… - What is… okay. - What do you think that is, Rhett? - (Rhett) Uh… This is something that drops out of a tree. It's like an acorn or something. - What is it? - (Noah offscreen) It's called a rambutan. (Noah) It comes from a medium-sized tropical tree. Okay, and then this is the top of a pineapple. (Link) What's your answer? (Rhett exhales) Pineapple seems like the kinda things that's just like, (silly voice) "Hey, you know what? You can eat the fruit, but stay away from the leaves. They're poisonous." Like you could see, like, Keanu Reeves saying that. - I just did, I think. - (laughing) (Rhett) I'm gonna say that the rrr-AHM-ya-taaaan... - is… edible! - (Noah offscreen) You are correct. - Yeah! (correct ding) - Really? Yeah, man. (silly voice) You gotta eat this. Well, stop touchin' it! I don't wanna eat things you've touched. Or this, - for any reason. - (through laughter) Okay. (Noah offscreen) You do cut it open, and there is a small piece inside. - Hm… - What you got in there? (Rhett) Looks like a sea animal. Ooh. Ooh! - Look at that, guys! - (Rhett) I knda want to eat this. (chewing) It tastes like a grape! (Rhett) So there's no issue. There's no issue with me eating it, so I want you to try it. - Whoa. Ram-a-tan! - It's amazing! - Ram-a-TAN! - Ram-a-TAN! - …Is that way you call it? - (Noah offscreen) Rambutan. Rambutan. - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Five! Bring 'er in! Link, this is your choice. - Oh, yeah, it is. I choose to choose. - Yes. - All right! Oui oui, monsieur! - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ (Rhett) Hey, we're not tipping you, by the way. Okay, so we've got… Is this lard? (Rhett) It's soap. And what is th-- heh, this is like air freshener? Oh, gosh. Okay. This one's pretty easy. (laughing) I knew… (stammering) I can't eat that whole bar of soap! Y'all gotta give me a portion that's... I-- (coughs) I'll give you a portion that's edible. I'm saying that this is edible, and that Rhett is gonna need to eat a portion. - Look, it's got fat floatin' on top. - (Noah offscreen) You are correct. - Okay. (correct ding) Wow, Rhett. - (Noah) Not all soap is edible, however. You have to make sure it's made from natural, non-toxic ingredients... He's eating it. It doesn't… The disclaimers don't matter to me. - (Rhett) So I need a knife. - You rip it apart, and whatever you - rip off is what you have to eat. - Oh! Nooo... Yeah! And try to rip it as small as you can. Okay, then I'll take my fingernail and rip it off. (stammering) With all your fingers. (lip smacking) That was so soapy. All right, just… here. Can I cut you a sliver? Dude, I can tell you from the little fingernail-- Oh my gosh! - There's no way! - (Link) I think you have to eat that much. - (Link) I'll taste a little bit. - Oh, it's so strong! Why'd you get such a strong flavor? - (Link) Oh my goodness. - There's no way I-- - I mean, just that… - Ugh! Ugh, yeah. Yeah. - Don't do it. - But I'm down so far now! - Oh, gosh! Just that little bit that's on my tongue is burnin'! - Yeah it's bad. - Mm! - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Six! Why did I eat what you had to eat? Like, I was so curious. - That was-- - I couldn't believe that is was... - That was all you, brother. - ...bad as you said. - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - Can I see the manager? - Oh my goodness. - 'Cause this is hair. - (Link laughing) - (Rhett) And, uh, cardboard. - Is that hair? - (Link) The question is, whose? (Rhett) It looks like it comes from a certain place. - Like Peru. All right... - (crew laughing offscreen) (Rhett) Well, I mean, I know you can eat hair. There are people who eat hair. I think the question is, is it safe to hair? This is difficult. - It is difficult. - I'm gonna say the hair is edible. (Noah offscreen) Unfortunately, that is incorrect. - Oh! (incorrect buzzer) - But you're saying that cardboard is digestible? Try it out. It's digestible. hair is not digestible. I'll also make that argument. If you eat a piece of cardboard, uh... I think it's gonna come out a little altered. (chewing) (exhales) We've eaten paper before. That's a lot better than the soap. - It's pretty nasty. - (Link) Lemme see it. It's still… it's completely still bound as cardboard. - Just give up, man. - I need this point real bad. The point spread isn't that much. Now, I'm about to burp, and I think - it's gonna make a bubble. - There's a lotta fiber in this. Just swallow it. You've swallowed a pill bigger than that before. - (cup hits the table) Down. - Next round. - (sizzling and a ding) - (Both Rhett & Link) Round Seven! All right, got a little fiber in your diet. Now it's my turn to decide. (Rhett) It feels like it's expanding! - (Chase laughing) - (Link) Okay, you're gonna drop some? - ♪ (harp glissando) ♪ - Okay... So we have simple green cleaner, and... (Noah offscreen) That is oven grease. From Eddie's oven. (Link) Oven grease is just drippings from food that have been heated. - You would think that's edible. - (Link) But I think there's also oven cleaner in there. That concerns me.
